Goodwin College offers those students pursuing a bachelor’s degree an opportunity to choose a minor program of study to serve as a secondary area of interest that may extend a student’s scope of study in a related field or balance their major through study in a completely different field.
Minors are 15 credits. Completion of a minor requires that a student earn a C (2.0) grade or better in each of the required courses for that minor. No more than 9 credits may be used to meet both major/general education/concentration and minor course requirements. Students can substitute up to six credits with permission of the Department Chair or Program Director. A maximum of 6 transfer credits may be applied toward the minor. At this time a student may not earn more than one minor.
Refer to the appropriate Academic Department page for specific minor curriculum requirements
To be considered for a minor, students entering their last semester must apply for a minor through the Registrar’s Office when submitting their application for award of credential. After completion of requirements, the minor will be recorded on the student’s final transcript.
